Re: [seul-edu] Mail Filters

I use John Hardin's procmail filters to solve the ms virus/worm/other
horrible thing problem.

you need to use procmail for the local delivery agent.  I thinks this is
still the default on RedHat installs dont't know about others.  In any
case procmail could be installed.  the filters work very well.

A list of extensions know to carry email "disease" are mangled before
